A FEW WORDS ABOUT RUHUL AMIN

Canoe Trip

  

Ruhul Amin is known for creating sensitive, understated, poetic films centred around life in the Bengali community of East London.

Ruhul’s talent is in his manipulation of cinematic

language – the fusion of rich, lingering images with the intensity with the intensity of silence. Often little is said but within “everything else”, he manages to evoke a sense of the passion which burns beneath the despair of living in this “cold climate”. His work has been likened to the early films of De Sica and Satyajit Ray.

====================== 

A KING OF ENGLISH (1986) explores the myriad of complex relationships which develop within a family due to frustrations causes by unemployment, displacement and a longing or the homeland seen through the eyes of a nine-year old boy. His latest release is Rhythms; it is a lyrical film about an old man, a newly arrived bride and a young boy who are bound together in their common appreciation of traditional Bengali music.

The music offers a temporary respite and release from their loneliness and isolation. Ruhul’s talent is in his manipulation of cinematic
